Subaru Hosts Event to Help Pets in Need During 2019 Chicago Auto Show

On February 8 Subaru of America announced it will be hosting a pet adoption event during the 2019 Chicago Auto Show through partnerships with two local animal shelters — ALIVE Rescue and Hopeful Tails Animal Rescue. Both 501(c)3 non-profit organizations are dedicated to improving the safety and well-being of Chicago’s homeless and at-risk animals. This is a first-of-its-kind event to be held at the Subaru exhibit inside the McCormick Place convention center, and is aimed at finding forever home for some of the pets in the Chicago metro area.

Auto show attendees who visit the exhibit will have the opportunity to adopt and take home a dog or puppy. They’re all puppies at heart, but some of these pets are older than others. Anyone who isn’t interested in adopting a pet can make rope toys as a donation to one of the shelters or for their own pet, as well as create custom pet tags using the Subaru Loves Pets engraver. All the activities at the Subaru booth will be complimentary, with any donations and proceeds going to the two hard working choice animal shelters in the greater Chicago area.

Alan Bethke, Senior Vice President, Marketing of Subaru of America, Inc. said, “We’re always keeping an eye out for new and unique opportunities to positively impact our furry friends and help them find forever homes. We’re passionate about returning the unconditional love pets show us every day and partnering with organizations such as ALIVE Rescue and Hopeful Tails Animal Rescue to help keep all animals, especially those in shelters, happy, healthy and safe.”

During select times and dates during the show, attendees can go by for playtime with some of these adoptable dogs.

This Chicago Auto Show adoption event is a part of the Subaru Loves Pets initiative, which is dedicated to helping improve the safety and well-being of animals in communities nationwide. Subaru’s commitment to pets is only one part of its Love Promise.
